For hour one Studebaker Hawk drops heavy synth bombs. Then for hour two, he presents a tribute to the Dutch band Massada. The band put out 4 LPs and a live album in the late 70s and early 80s. They found success in Holland, though minimal success in the rest of the world. They were heavily influenced by Santana, though also brought in elements from the indigenous music from their Moluccan heritage, and the disco that was popular at the time.

Acapulco Nights 10/10/14, Jeff Wayne's "War of the Worlds"

To get ready for Halloween, we bring you Jeff Wayne's "War of the Worlds". The musical adaptation of H.G. Wells' novel, came out in 1978, and was a big seller in the UK. Featured a star studded cast, and with arrangement by Jeff Wayne. Though it gets pretty schlocky at times, it's great example of synthesizer based prog rock, which went on to influence cosmic disco and Italo. Hope everyone has an awesome Halloween!
